funny-pictur• AMERICANS rarely need an excuse to start firing their guns randomly into large groups of people.
So BBM was surprised to hear that no-one was injured during a suspected armed robbery, which turned into a hostage situation, in New York this week.
A sharp-eyed member of the public called the authorities after watching the drama unfold at a convenience store but it ended peacefully when armed officers turned up and ordered the lone gunman to drop his weapon.
The would-be robber duly shat himself and did as ordered. Only he wasn’t a criminal, he was an actor and the whole thing was being filmed as part of a movie. Unfortunately, hapless director Fred Carpenter had forgotten to pre-warn the authorities and almost lost his lead actor as a result.
